Sony had its technical demonstration gallery in hand as it debuted the PlayStation 3 in Japan Thursday afternoon at the PlayStation Meeting in Tokyo. Prior to showing off some slick game trailers, including Gran Turismo Vision, Killzone and a few debut titles, it demonstrated the power of the new system through ducks, super hero villains, a recreation of London and an Unreal 3 engine demo.
The Tokyo PS3 tech demos were, for the most part, the same as those shown at the system's debut back at E3. However, there were some differences here and there. The duck demo includes some new elements at the end and, due to it being fully controllable, is completely different from the E3 clip. Likewise, the demo showcasing the villain from Spiderman 2 is controlled by a different person this time around, giving you a different look at the same demo.
Of particular interest is the Unreal 3 demo. While Sony chose to show the same impressive trailer clip that was shown at E3, it also replayed the clip a second time, this time pausing the action and playing around with the settings. If you want to see what the Unreal 3 demo looks like without shaders and in wire frame, here's your chance. Providing narration is Epic's Tim Sweeney, with Sony Computer Entertainment cheif technology officer Masa Chatani translating Sweeney's comments into Japanese.
